No offense to Tim Ferriss...it's certainly not a '4-Hour Workweek', at least not at the beginning...
Lakewood Ranch, Fla. (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
In a recent video seminar, New Bright Life’s founder George Schofield teaches people about employment over 50, finding or creating work, and making money in the new economy. These five employment options are jobs, self employment, expertise consulting, being an entrepreneur, and becoming an investor of sweat equity rather than money.
Dr. Schofield is an expert in successful aging, extended employment, and personal development. According to Schofield, relying only on traditional jobs isn’t the best strategy for finding work and making money because there is more and more competition in the current economy.
According to Schofield, 14 million Americans are looking for work. 83% of boomers plan to work after retirement. More people over 55 are employed than ever before…up 3.1 million since the recession began. This is why it’s important for people over 50 to have multiple employment options in addition to just looking for a job.
Schofield recommends that people consider pursuing more than one of these ways at the same time. He also suggests that people over age 50 need to understand that the ways they work and make money will have to change over the remainder of their working lives.
According to Schofield, people looking for new employment opportunities run the risk of romanticizing self employment, consulting, and being an entrepreneur…thereby thinking they are good options for making easy money, fast. Says Schofield, “No offense to Tim Ferriss…it’s definitely not a '4-Hour Workweek', at least not at the beginning.
